Elinore M. Vallese 82, of Port Clinton and Verona, WI, passed away on Monday, Feb. 10, with her husband, Tony by her side.
Elinore was born on Mother’s Day, May 9, 1931 to Mary and Michael Migala, Jr. She was a 1949 graduate of Port Clinton High School. On Thanksgiving Day, 1954 she married Anthony Vallese, who has been her partner and soul mate for nearly 60 years.
Elinore was talented and vivacious with many hobbies and interests including gardening and canning. However, she was most passionate about her family and friends.
She never missed a high school band performance or an academic ceremony of her daughter, Jane. When granddaughters Gina and Sonia were born, friends and acquaintances would be shown a stack of photos accompanied by anecdotes. Elinore also enjoyed coffee or lunches with her gal pals.
Elinore was preceded in death by her mother and father and her brother, Edward. She is survived by her husband, Tony of Verona; daughter, Jane Vallese Carrola, son-in-law Steve Carrola and granddaughters Gina and Sonia Carrola, all of Fitchburg, and nephew Michael Migala, III of Broken Arrow, OK.
A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 14, at Ryan Funeral Home, Verona Chapel, 220 Enterprise Drive, Verona, WI, with Reverend Sheryl Erickson officiating. Visitation will be on Friday at the funeral home from 10 a.m. until the time of service. Burial will take place at a later date.
The family would like to thank Senior Helper Aides Maria del Rios and Judy Gartman for the loving care they bestowed on Elinore as well as Agrace Hospice for their compassionate care during her final days.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Agrace Hospice (Fitchburg, WI), Verona Senior Center, or St. John’s Lutheran Church, Port Clinton.
